Apple may just be planning to update its iMac lineup with newer 10th Gen Intel Comet Lake CPUs and AMD’s powerful Navi graphics and is spotted by @_rogame. But there’s a cache, instead of a retail 10th Gen Intel CPU, we see a new 10 core CPU i.e. the Core i9-10910 processor being paired with an unannounced AMD Radeon Pro 5300 desktop GPU.
The CPU seems to be solely developed for Apple as the Core i9-10910 features 10 cores and 20 threads along with a base clock speed of 3.60 GHz which is way higher than that of the regular Core i9-10900 with 2.8 GHz clock speed. The CPU boosts up to 4.7 GHz with a presumed TDP of 95W which is again not bad but might have been deliberately made not to reach 5 GHz to keep the iMac cool.
This seems to be the iMac refresh for 2020 with powerful Intel CPUs with more cores and newer graphics from AMD which is the unannounced Radeon Pro 5300 GPU with 4 GB VRAM and 1,650 MHz clock speed. AMD launched the Radeon Pro 5300M mobile GPU for MacBook Pro, so its desktop brother making its way for Apple yet again seems no surprise to me.
The RAM used seems to be a DDR4 memory underclocked at a timid 1,333 MHz but with proper cooling and optimizations from Apple, the new Apple iMac can be real powerful under the hood without losing the design and aesthetics of it.
